Would you like to use social media?
At our first social media event in Westchester, NY, we gave you an overview of the main social networks. In the follow up to the social media seminar, President and Founder of Ruby Media Group, Kris Ruby, will give you an interactive workshop and take you live into the main social networks including LinkedIN, Twitter and Facebook.
At this workshop, you will learn how to leverage social media sites for personal as well as corporate branding. Kristen will go through live examples of LinkedIN profiles that are successful for lead generation and branding. She will pick a live audience member and critique their profile as well as provide helpful branding and PR suggestions to “socialize” their profile for web 2.0
Learn how your company can leverage these new marketing distribution channels to optimize content. At this event, there will also be a Q& A session with Kristen where you can ask her any question on social media marketing.
